The first Zhiyun Annual Short Video Contest, held in 2018, was a great success. That event, with up to US$10,000 in prizes, drew a total of 600 entries from more than 50 countries and regions. This year the prize value has been increased substantially, with the first place winner taking home a Nikon Z 6, CRANE 3 LAB Master Package, cash and other equipment awards worth US$14,500 in total, and multiple second and third prize winners.

Videos should be between one minute and ten minutes long, including a two second Zhiyun logo intro. There are no limitations on equipment used for videos, although winners whose videos clearly feature Zhiyun products will receive additional special prizes. Entries can be submitted via Youtube or via the ZY Play App.

The prestigious panel of international judges includes noted filmmaker and director, Brandon Li; Benn Tkalcevic (Benn TK), creative content creator and travel filmmaker; and Josh Morgan, founder of Momentum Productions.
